where are you going where have you been?
Where Are You Going Where Have You Been? is a frequently anthologized short story written by Joyce Carol Oates. The story first appeared in the Fall 1966 edition of Epoch magazine. It was inspired by three Tucson Arizona murders committed by Charles Schmid which were profiled in Life magazine in an article written by Don Moser on March 4 1966. Oates said that she dedicated the story to Bob Dylan because she was inspired to write it after listening to his song Its All Over Now Baby Blue
